I have attached what I believe is a 1990 No S cent Lincoln penny.  I believe to be worth anywhere from $850 to $4,000.  Just wondering whether it is the real deal or not.  Please see attached photos.  Is this coin really worth a lot of money?

Hi George,

Thank you for the pictures.

You can go ahead and spend this one -- it's just a regular issue penny from the Philadelphia Mint.  Only the mirrored finish proof coins that are in the mint sealed sets can possibly be the no-S variety.

Wish I had better news for you,

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.


I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
